Star Wars Book Challenge 12: The Last Command (Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy #3)

The embattled Republic reels from the attacks of Grand Admiral Thrawn, who has marshaled the remnants of the Imperial forces and driven the Rebels back with an abominable technology recovered from the Emperor’s secret fortress: clone soldiers. As Thrawn mounts his final siege, Han and Chewbacca struggle to form a coalition of smugglers for a last-ditch attack against the empire, while Leia holds the Alliance together and prepares for the birth of her Jedi twins. Overwhelmed by the ships and clones at Thrawn’s command, the Republic has one last hope–sending a small force, led by Luke Skywalker, into the very stronghold that houses Thrawn’s terrible cloning machines. There a final danger awaits, as the Dark Jedi C’baoth directs the battle against the Rebels and builds his strength to finish what he had already started: the destruction of Luke Skywalker.

What Star Wars novel should I start with?

The Thrawn Trilogy!!

Just finished it for the second time and wow. Still great and complete trilogy, filled with action and amazing storytelling. Zahn bravely pushes the saga in interesting new directions that sets the bar for all the novels that have followed. I think what I like about the each novel in this trilogy is that they have their own arc. Yet Zahn links this them all together in the end of it all. So read this set if you can!!

Oh The Courtship of Princess Leia…… I remember reading this novel when it first come out. Before the time of the Disney, before the dark times that were the other three movies… Well I should say that. Overtime I’ve come to like the for what they are and it’s also fun to watch my kids watch them. Anywho!! Novel yes! Sorry…  Courtship of Princess Leia.. I think this is the first novel of Star Wars where it left me with a bad taste in my mouth.. So many unfinished story lines, plot holes, etc. I also found out that the author Dave Wolverton was to pen a trilogy. Starting with Courtship, which would explain some of the unfinished plots. But the whole thing was canceled like Fox slapping around Firefly…..Oooo To soon?.. The reasons being, I still don’t know and can’t seem to find anything about it. It’s funny reading through all the hate for this book tho hahaha. Comparing it to really bad fan fiction, yeah fan fiction.. Over all i would stay away from this one.

Seeking rich, powerful allies to bring into the Rebel Alliance and a new home planet for the refugees of her native Alderaan, Princess Leia considers a proposal that could tip the balance of power against the evil Empire. The Hapes Consortium of 63 worlds is ruled by the Queen Mother, who wants Leia to marry her son, the dashing and wealthy Prince Isolder. Han Solo has always dreamed of marrying Leia himself, and now he makes a desperate last gamble to win her back. Soon he, Isolder, Luke Skywalker and Artoo will be at the center of an adventure leading to an awesome treasure, a group of Force-trained “witches,” and a showdown with an invincible foe.

Star Wars Book Challenge 10: Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel (Star Wars Disney Canon Novel)

So we have Star Wars: Catalyst (A Rogue One Novel) By James Luceno and this story line does fall into the Disney’s Canon of novels. Now this book is not essential to read before seeing Rogue One the movie. It just gives you more ensign on the history of the characters that coe up in the movie.

War is tearing the galaxy apart. For years the Republic and the Separatists have battled across the stars, each building more and more deadly technology in an attempt to win the war. As a member of Chancellor Palpatine’s top secret Death Star project, Orson Krennic is determined to develop a superweapon before their enemies can. And an old friend of Krennic’s, the brilliant scientist Galen Erso, could be the key.

Galen’s energy-focused research has captured the attention of both Krennic and his foes, making the scientist a crucial pawn in the galactic conflict. But after Krennic rescues Galen, his wife, Lyra, and their young daughter, Jyn, from Separatist kidnappers, the Erso family is deeply in Krennic’s debt. Krennic then offers Galen an extraordinary opportunity: to continue his scientific studies with every resource put utterly at his disposal. While Galen and Lyra believe that his energy research will be used purely in altruistic ways, Krennic has other plans that will finally make the Death Star a reality. Trapped in their benefactor’s tightening grasp, the Ersos must untangle Krennic’s web of deception to save themselves and the galaxy itself.

The story line is set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. More focused on the plans for the first Death Star as well as introduced the Erso family and the main antagonist, Orson Krennic. It’s a good prequel to Rogue One. Less action-packed and more deliberate than the other Star Wars canons.
Overall, I loved the novel and it does a good job of filling the holes that were left in the film. A must read for any Star Wars fanboy out there!!
